So I'm not really big into drums or anything, but I do like to smash around on a kit every now and then, so I have my epitome-of-mediocrity kit. I got the kit about a year ago, and after using it for a few months, I completely killed the crash cymbal, so I needed a new one, but one that didn't cost too much because I'm not super serious about drumming, but I still need a crash cymbal. So I looked around musicians friend for a while, trying to find the cheapest crash that I could, and I came across this Paiste 101 Brass Crash. I bought it, set it up when it arrived, and played it. And i have to say, I don't have any complaints. FOR THE PRICE, this thing sounds really nice, and I don't think there's anything better in it's price range. It has a pretty loud sound to it, and a fairly crisp one at that. I would also imagine that this thing could last awhile, because I thrashed it fairly often and it only started breaking after 4 months of me using it horrible cymbal stand set-up that would;ve broken any cymbal. It is definitely not a zildian at all, but if you're on a budget or just not that serious of a drummer (like me), then this is a great cymbal for you.

I bought this cymbal because Paiste is a spectacular brand, but wasn't to thrilled with this one. The sound is pretty good for the price, but I could of gotten a way better cymbal like the Meinl HCS crash. I recomend this for beginers. Don't waste your money when there's better cymbals out there.

this is a great cymbal

By killster 63

from louisana

This cymbal is so unbelievable how great it sounds . I play for my church(I have this one along with others) on my set at home. At church one of the cymbals is a zildgen A custom, top of the line and this cheap cymbal sounds like it should be expensive. Great choice for me. Buy this cymbal you won't be dissapointed. Oh and by the way just to be safe go ahead and buy the warranty so if it does crack youll get a new one free!

By t-bone-KXj1X

I bought a 16in crash a few weeks ago and it sounds great, much better than my old 14in pearl crash I bought from a local music store, it is really good for the price.

SUPA FAFREAKIN SWEET CYMBAL

By Dave-J_oaj

from Ohio

This crash cymbal is awesome. I bought a PAISTE cymbal pack and it came with it and it works nicely, it has a nice warm crash sound to it that I like. Overall, if I were you, I would definatly think about adding it to my set. It is uber sweet and it is at an afordable price.

so-so

By Ryoubreathingnow

i bought the 14in a week or so ago, its a decent cymbol for those who are BROKE, have no way, atall, of getting cash, and need a crashif that is you, go for it, but if not there are wayyy better out there.i just bought a zildjian ZBT 16in crash, and i love it, but the paiste 101 14in does not sound good next to a ZBT, and im guessing any crash that has a nice shimmerbottom line, dont bother with this thing, you can get better for not much more.

The best crash I have ever owned (out of 1)

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I ordered the 16 in. and 2 days later it shipped. Put this baby up on a Pulse double braced boom stand and just crash! I love Paiste, and I know they're great because 3 of the best drummers of all time have played them: Larry Mullen Jr. (U2), Stewart Copeland (The Police), and John Bonham (Led Zeppelin.) Sure they played different series, but this is still a great cymbal. I plan on buying the 14 in. too.-Features: Plays awesome, just enough sizzle-Quality: Solidly built, brilliant finish-Value: Great price for a great cymbal-OVERALL: This is the best cymbal I have ever owned.PS: I want to get the hats and the ride as well.
